Thank you for the answers,
I anticipated this answer from Randy and I really understand what the CQWW
contest committee wants.
Really Win-Test should solve this issue - good old CT had a function where you
could assign a different DXCC country from the QSO entry line (you just type
Maybe I didn't really make the implications clear - the problem is not the zone
or score, that's all neglectable and I know that the CQWW score robot will fix
this - it's rather the mere fact that KL7 shows up as worked on that very band
in my logging software and I'll have to memorize that fact when searching for
mults - and I was looking for an easy workaround for this where I wouldn't have
to go back into my log after the contest and change something.

This question has come up several times so I will answer it here.
You should log the call sign as sent.
The log checking software will handle placing the call in the right country (or
judging if the call sign is not correct).
True, your logging software doesn't seem to count your score correctly, but
that is not a factor for the contest committee since the Cabrillo format
doesn't mark multipliers. As mentioned above, we will recalculate the score of
all logs submitted.
As I said in the webinar. Put your log in Cabrillo format and send it in.
